    I cautiously head to the front of the line, where everyone can see me and judge how fast I am traveling as I proceed through the turn. Typically, I act as a crossing guard here, too, directing the...

    I had built my grandson's first three bikes before he was a year-old. It turns out that neither he, nor my other four grandchildren, even know how to ride bikes. Their parents just never thought it...

    Just FYI, I am not looking for recommendations of speakers, battery packs, or charging accessories. I just want to know, from anyone who has used the items I have been given, if they are keepers or...

    Hmmm. Good thought, but my commute is always in daylight, so I haven't really used a headlight in a long time.

    Almost Trick:

    Stop making me think about Betty and Veronica's awesome hotness. You're making me crave a chocolate bar!
  6. Opinions on these accessories bike commuters might use?

    I don't know if posting this to Bike Forums is going to work, but I just got a few DigiPower accessories that I think some of you might already own and I don't know whether I should keep them.

    All excellent. I'm very healthy, physically. I just find myself hooked on sweet everything after my biking season ends. My sugar levels are also good, so it's not diabetes or any of the glycemias....

    I totally agree with everything that has been said here about sugar. I am NOT a junk food junkie. I have been a strict vegetarian for almost thirty years and I am generally a snob about the quality...

    Jon and Linda:

    First, I am kind of jealous.

    Second, are you aware that much of the Greenway is still unbuilt?

    Third, should you decide to ride the route anyway, I will still be kind of...

    I do all those things as well. But with so many riders (especially my age group 50+) always talking about how much they enjoy pie or other sugary treats on their rides, I can't help getting sucked...

    So I admit I'm a Weather Weenie and I put my bike away in the winter. Unfortunately, the time of year when everybody is throwing sweets at me and they feel so warm and delicious coincides with the...

    Love it. My favorite is "No bike does everything perfectly. In fact, no bike does anything until someone gets on it to ride." I'd love to make that my new signature. Would I get sued?

    Excellent, excellent interview. Makes me want to get out on my bike right now, even though it's in the 30's and getting dark very fast. Nah. I'm one of those guys with a million excuses.

    I get it. I also play the ukulele and we all suffer from something we call UAS, which stands for Ukulele Acquisition Syndrome. Essentially, instead of actually PLAYING our instruments, we all spend...

    I hate to be THAT GUY who boo-hoos your whole premise, but why do we keep insisting that we need different bikes for different types of riding? I drive the same car to work that I drive to the next...

    Is a trunk bag going to fit and be easy-on/easy-off with that pannier in place? On many trunk bags (except some Topeaks) you need to wrap a Velcro strap around the sides to hold it on. Also, I know...

    Thanks. Miele.

    I have to chuckle, though, because I didn't mean I am THAT dumb about gears! I just don't understand the difference between, say, 1 in front and 6 in back versus 2 in front and 3...

    I've been riding for more than 45 years and I still don't understand gear ratios. I currently commute and tour on a mountain bike with 3 chain rings in the front and a 7-ring cassette in the rear. ...

    Not much choice. We've got somewhere around 15" outside the door and my back is in total spasm from my first shoveling round.

    Y'know, based on your past ride reports, I actually believed you before I scrolled all the way down your post. Anyway, my guess is that there are REAL cyclists riding to work today somewhere in our...

    I don't recall the circumstances of your situation, but I am glad to hear you are moving forward.

    My commute is only a few miles a day. When I ran the numbers through one of those "How much do you save by bike commuting?" apps, it came out to very nominal savings. As others have said, I commute...

    My other problem with the EXP is that it is missing the extra pocket in the rear, a very convenient feature of the DX/DXP (?) that is also on my knockoff Schwinn bag. I use it for my keys and other...

    I should have mentioned that, like many commuters here, I also take a few overnight trips each year. For these, I need to pack the bags pretty full. The zippers and/or seams on the Schwinn bag will...
